Bring back the Smurfs!
This year's Coutts Award went to a talented and deserving artist named Mer-
lin Dennis. The 21 -year-old Butler sophomore's work has been on display in the Erman
B. White Gallery during much of the spring semester, he even had his own show. Den-
nis is successful in many different kinds of art, but says, "Cartooning is my favorite and
I also like charcoal."
Dennis is no stranger to winning awards. A Wichita native, Dennis attended
East High School where he served as editorial cartoonist on the school newspaper for
three years. There, he was recognized as the best high school cartoonist in the state
during his junior year. (He came in second his senior year and third his sophomore
year.) Dennis credits his dad for being his main inspiration because, he says, "When I
was a kid, he was really into comic books."
Although his love for cartooning is great, Dennis says he doesn't spend much
time watching cartoons. "Ever since they took the Smurfs off the air, I don't watch a lot.
Cartoons have gone downhill."
Dennis feels that his artistic talent has grown since he came to Butler. He
recalls, "Before 1 came here I never did a lot of shading and I didn't know how the heck
to measure with your pencil and thumb. But after the first year it really came together."
He says he values the constructive criticism he gets at Butler, compared to that of the
high school environment, because. "It pushes me to do better."
Dennis plans to graduate this fall and go on to Wichita State University. He
wants to major in art education so he can work with kids at the elementary school level.
He jokes, "I'm a little bit hyper myself, so we'd get along pretty good." And what does
Dennis think about people who complain that they can't draw? "They haven't
tried. ..anybody can draw." Well, that's pretty easy for him to say.

Arty Facts 5
It started out to be a typical late Kansas spring day: hot, windy and humid. But unlike
364 days, this one was unique for many reasons. This was graduation day at Butler County
Community College. For the hundreds of graduates attending, this was the day they had waited
for, the first day of their future.
It was a first step. Some would be going on to various universities to continue their
education. Others would be starting their search for their dream job, the one that their studies
had prepared them for. For those not quite sure what they wanted to do next, this was a new
beginning. Today, the graduating class of 1996 had one goal, to graduate. On May 18, they
achieved that goal.
This graduation ceremony, like myriad others, had many common factors. Like oth-
ers, students gathered in alphabetical order and marched to the gymnasium for the ceremonies.
In the gym (and the Kansas Room of the 1500 Building, which was packed, too, with well-
wishers), family friends and significant others, were waiting to watch and cheer their loved
ones as they received their diplomas. Like most graduation ceremonies, the faculty put on its
fancy robes and tassles, and this one had a typical order of events. But this was no ordinary
graduation ceremony. This one had a certain flair, a definite special quality.
Once the grads had taken their seats, Pastor Stan Seymour of the First Christian Church
in El Dorado gave the invocation. Then came BCCC graduate and vocalist Rachel Taylor's
rendition of the school song, "Between Earth and Sky," followed by the college's Headliners
singing "Think of Me" and "Friends of the Heart." Upon completion of these talented artists'
offerings. President Jackie Vietti made introductions and the day's guest speaker was announced.
Barbara Matous, director and owner of Acrobatic Academy Fitness and Eduction Center
in Wichita, was this year's featured speaker. Matous, a Butler grad, spoke of her childhood
memories growing up in El Dorado, the hard work and dedication she had which brought her to
the point she was in her life. BCCC graduates, family and friends listened as she told how they,
too, should follow their dreams and someday their dreams just might come true. For this is
what graduation is all about, following your dreams.
Upon completion of her speech, the 1996 class was presented to the audience,
and awards were presented to this year's Order of the Gold receipients, and to the win-
ner of the prestigious Hubbard Award of Excellence, Ann Elaine Patton.
As graduation exercises wrapped up, graduates proceeded to the front of the
Power Plant to receive their degrees, certificates and GEDs. Each person's name was
called, family and friends applauded, cheered, rang bells and whistled their congratula-
tions. For some, although clearly embarassed, it was worth the trip to receive the cov-
eted award for all their hard work. Then a benediction was given and the graduating
class of 1996 marched out of the building to music performed by the BCCC Wind En-
A reception was held on the front lawn. Here, moms and dads took pictures of
their "babies," while others milled around sipping lemonade and reminiscing and ex-
changing congratulations among friends.
Steve Moses was one of the recent grads. He'd just received his Associate in
Applied Science degree. Moses explained that he is employed with Boston Chicken in
Wichita and that he plans to continue his education at K-State, majoring in restaurant/
motel management. Moses wore a graduation cap like the hundreds of other graduates,
except his was customized. He attached a telling sign to his. "10K — 3 YRS LATER."
An observer might thing that maybe he was a member of the track team. But only upon
talking to Steve Moses does one come to understand that it referred to $10,000 — the
amount of money he'd spent getting his Butler degree — and three years — the time it
took to reach this milestone.
"WHODATHUNKIT?" was the post script. A fitting one on a day like this.—

The first Midwest Spectacular lamb sale drew people from all
over who were hoping to find a great lamb at a good price.
Story by Dave "Bulldog" Brown
Photo by Jeff "One Hundred Percent Wool" Cooper
There was no wool being pulled over anyone's eyes as the Butler show management
team hosted what was being touted as the first Midwest Spectacular one warm evening in
April. It's an auction for prospect club lambs that are brought to the sale by some of the finest
lamb breeders in Kansas. The five breeders who came to the sale brought 10 lambs apiece, and
with 50 top show lambs for sale, people from across the region came to the college's agricul-
ture facility hoping to find a great lamb at a good price. The five breeders at the sale were:
Slater Club Lambs, Stine Club Lambs, Schweer/Roberts Club Lambs, Mein Club Lambs, and
Maddox Club Lambs.
The BCCC show management team, led by Matt Corwine, set up the arena for the
sale. In fact, the show management team did most of the work period. They made the fliers for
the sale, they built the ads and had them printed in magazines where they would be seen all
over the Midwest. The success of this sale was due largely to how well it was advertised and
the commitment made by Butler's Matt Corwine and Blake Flanders.
The sale started with two quick eye-openers that commanded everybody's attention.
The first lamb to sell was a Slater Lamb which sold for $475. Next up was a Stine Lamb which
sold for a whopping $ 1 ,350. It turned out to be the high selling lamb of the evening. After all
was said and done the lamb sale averaged $300 per lamb and was considered to be highly
successful for everybody involved. The sale average exceeded all of the expectations that
anybody had for a first sale. Event organizers hope it will become an annual event. This is
partly due to the fact that the breeders who came to the sale all had their fair share of success,
and partly due to the excellent planning and marketing of the sale.
Of the five breeders who came to the sale, Stine Club Lambs had the highest average
of $477.50 per lamb. Mein Club Lambs ran a close second with an average of $437.50 per
lamb. Schweer/Roberts came in third at $233.33 per lamb, Slater was fourth highest with
$194.44 per lamb, and Maddox was fifth with $152.77 per lamb. For the first year these aver-
ages were great and it is only bound to get better with age. This is because the more years a sale
is put on the more patrons it attracts, and if the lambs sold at the sale are successful year after
year, the fame of the sale will grow also.
The Midwest Spectacular was deemed a big success by the event's planners and all of
the breeders were pleased with the turnout of the people who came to the sale and with the
prices that were obtained for the lambs sold. The Midwest Spectacular was great this year but
in years to come it should be even better.

McConnell astronomy instructor considers the cosmos his classroom
Final frontier is students' destination
When students step into one of instructor Doug Wereb's
classes, they embark on a "voyage" to the final frontier —
The astronomy teacher at Butler of McConnell Air Force
branch does more than just lecture, he creates an environ-
ment where his students can experience the fantastic won-
ders of the cosmos.
"I don't want my students to memorize and regurgitate.
I want them to really learn about space," said Wereb, who
has been teaching at McConnell for three years.
The 1975 Ohio Sate University graduate taught as-
tronomy and was a senior research associate at the Univer-
sity of Virgina for eight years before moving to Wichita.
"I was offered a job at the Omnisphere to be a plan-
etarium educator, so I decided to move," he said. "I started
teaching at Butler in 1 993, and I really enjoyed it. Butler is a
good school and the students are professional — I find teach-
And for Wereb's students, the feeling is mutual.
"His enthusiasm is contagious," said Kevin Hickey, one
of Wereb's students. "When 1 first enrolled in the class, I
thought it would be a lot of numbers and definitions; how-
ever. Professor Wereb has made it a lot of fun, I've really
learned a lot."
Wereb helps his students appreciate astronomy by ex-
tending the learning environment outside the classroom. They
take field trips to the Omnisphere in Wichita and to the
Cosmosphere in Hutchinson.
"I think it's important for the students to have hands-on
experience," he said. "You can't bring spacecraft to the class-
room, so I take them to it. They learn so much more by actu-
ally seeing and experience some of the things I discuss dur-
Besides field trips to science centers, the astronomy pro-
fessor doesn't hesitate to move his classroom outdoors, where
his students get hands-on experience using telescopes to scan
the corridors of outer space.
"I remember my dad showing me the stars through a
telescope when I was just a little boy," he said. It was then
I became fascinated with space. And being able to share that
experience with my students is extremely rewarding.
Besides teaching at BCCC and working as a planetarium
educator, Wereb also designs and builds rocket systems. "I
develop low-cost rockets that are used for educational pur-
poses," he said. He also conducts lectures at local elemen-
tary and high schools.
"I love teaching, being able to open people's eyes to
another world. The future is in space — the final frontier." —

in determining what governance controls will benefit the
community college system and its 70,000 students," says
Mikel Ary, chairman of KACC's council of presidents and
president of Colby Community College as well.
Butler sweeps Skill and Leadership awards
Two Butler freshmen walked away with first place
awards at the Vocational Industrial Clubs of America Skill
and Leadership Championship held in Wichita in April. Luke
McKay of Andover and Beth Brautigam of Rosebud, Mo.,
were honored at a ceremony at Century II. McKay, a student
of computer instructor Mark Sanborn, placed first in tech-
nical computer applications. Brautigam, a student of ag in-
structor Blake Flanders, placed first in Prepared Speech.
Both students plan to graduate in May of 1997.
Scholarship recipients head for KU, KSU
The 1996-97 Winnie Broers Scholarship has been
awarded to two Butler students— Julie Anderson of Burns,
and Rod Jerrick of Belle Plaine— both '96 Butler graduates
who are transferring to state universities. Anderson says she
will continue her studies in journalism at the University of
Kansas, and Jerrick says he will go on to Kansas State Uni-
versity, where he will study agribusiness. The Broers Schol-
arship, given annually, is a $1,000 award and is renewable
for a second year. In order to be considered, a student must
be a Butler graduate, have at least a 3.0 GPA, and be trans-
ferring to either KU or K-State.
Flint Hills photo seminar offers variety
Summer classes don't just take place in the classroom
anymore. Students who have an interest in shooting, devel-
oping and printing black and white photos can enroll in the
Flint Hills Photography Seminar, offered on the El Dorado
campus June 7-12.
Instructor John Rhoads first presented the idea for this
course nine years ago. He felt like this was a good plan for
Butler to offer to its students, a chance for hands-on learning
in a fun environment.
Students enrolled in the seminar will be treated to a ro-
deo, barbecue, trailride and a trip to a working ranch, all of
which provide myriad photo opportunities. Although the stu-
dents will spend sometime in the college photo darkroom,
most of their time will be spent in the field shooting pic-
tures, Rhoads promises.
"Everyone who enrolls in the seminar brings new in-
sight." Rhoads says. "There is a wide range of experience.
From a high school student with no experience, to a profes-
sional. For five days the students live on the Butler campus.
The cost of the class, $295, is a little more expensive than
regular summer classes. However, the cost does include trans-
portation, as well as a room. Food and film expenses are not
covered. The seminar is sponsored by Ilford and provides
three hours of college credit. —by Jeanne Jones

Where else would we run em?
When Grizzly magazine photographers sign on for a tour or duty here, they are
given one specific marching order: Shoot lots of film. And burn film they did. During the
95-96 school year. Grizzly photographers have taken roughly 10,000 pictures of life at
Butler. However, of those, maybe only 500 were published in the four quarterly issues of
the magazine. Due to budgetary considerations, there is only so much room for pictures in
a magazine, even if it is a magazine that runs lots of pictures. ^]The photos on these pages
are ones that deserved to be published but that had no real home heretofore, thus Ray
scanned 'em. layed 'em out and we're running them just because we have wanted to all year
but never really had the reason or excuse. With the exception of the photo on the immediate
right of the Demies at Sea cast— taken by Tony Applegate— all photos on this page were shot

We can get exotic recipes from different countries
by watching TV cooking programs like Yan Can Cook, Great
Chefs, and World Class Cuisine. Most of these recipes come
from high-class restaurants in Italy, France and Greece, ex-
cept for recipes found on Yan Can Cook, where tantalizing
dishes are furnished by Yan, a funny Chinese cook, who fixes
various Chinese home dishes.
In the United States today, international cuisine is
so popular that we can find Italian, French and Chinese res-
taurants in many cities and towns — even here in Butler
But what I think is even more exciting is sampling
fare from countries that are not so well known for their cui-
Butler County Community College's International
Student Association publishes a cookbook each year called
"Recipes from Around the World." In it, Butler's interna-
tional students submit recipes from their countries, introduc-
ing recipes they already know, picking up more from recipe
books they brought from home, or simply calling their moms
and asking about how to cook their favorite dishes.
This year's edition includes recipes from Bulgaria,
Cyprus, Great Britain, Kenya, Korea, Mexico, Pakistan, Rus-
sia, Sri Lanka, Taiwan (ROC), Tanzania, Viet Nam, and Zim-
babwe. Not many people realize that during the Spring 1996
semester, 408 international students (including resident
aliens) from 67 countries attended one or more BCCC sites.
Haresh Rajakaruna, sophomore from Colombo, the
capital of Sri Lanka, submitted several recipes to this year's
cookbook, but he admitted he had never cooked those at
home; they were taken from a cookbook he had. Even though
he had never cooked any of the recipes, he could talk about
these foods because he surely had eaten those dishes. So I
asked him about the recipes he gave.
One recipe he talked about was a dish called "Pat-
ties." A Patty is a deep-fried pastry with a filling of cooked
beef and vegetables inside. Haresh said the filling can be
beef, pork, chicken, or whatever you like. Patties are sort
of Sri Lanka's fast food, and people in Sri Lanka — off the
southern tip of India in the Indian Ocean — eat Patties as
Americans eat hamburgers here, he added.
Patties are a very common food in Sri Lanka. Kids
like them, people make them at home, and most restau-
rants and grocery stores have them. But there is no such
restaurant which serves only Patties, according to Haresh.

4 es a s
1 small onion, chopped
1 tsp butter
1 apple, peeled
1 herring filet
1 tbsp mayonnaise
Hard boil the eggs, plunge into cold water, then
cut in half lengthwise. Remove the yolks with a
spoon and puree in a food processor with apple,
onion, herring, mayonnaise and the butter. Fill egg
halves with puree and garnish with parsley, capers
and strips of bell pepper.
He remembered that he used to eat Patties almost everyday
when he was in high school back in Sri Lanka.
Haresh thinks that we can make Patties using in-
gredients sold at grocery stores here. It is easy to make and
takes about 30 minutes, so he suggests every one try Patties
and other recipes in the cookbook.
I, too, think all the recipes in the book are possible
to prepare using what we can buy at grocery stores like
Dillons. In fact I cook for myself often. I live in an apart-
ment in El Dorado, and what I cook is, most times, Japanese
food (in case you do not remember, yes, I am from Japan).
Most ingredients I use are from Dillons, and the taste of com-
pleted dishes cooked with those ingredients is no different at
all from what I eat in Japan. Of course, as we know, it is now
available here to buy soy sauce and many seasonings which
are originally Japanese products.
In addition, if you want to try some of the recipes
in the International Student cookbook, there are several mar-
kets in Wichita which sell foodstuffs of foreign countries.
When we want to use the exact ingredients or seasonings,
we may be able to find them at specialty markets there.
If you are interested in and would like one of the
"Recipes from Around the World," they are available to buy
from Janet Obando, International Student Adviser, at the
counseling office in the 600 Building. One copy is $2.
It sure is exciting to try something you have never
tried, and it is not so difficult to try when you read this cook-
book because if I can cook, so can you! Here are several you
might want to try.

This was a season for setting new records and overcoming obstacles. The track team tried to do its best, but while
some were breaking records, other members had to withdraw from competition due to illnesses and injuries.
Things looked bright for the team as the men's distance medley relay won its events at the national indoor meet
in Carbondale, 111. The team came in fourth in the nation, setting a new Butler track record. Members of the team were:
Michael Kariuki, Danny McCormack, Robert Walterscheid, and Randy Grayson.
Other accomplishments included the Grizzlies setting a school record in the 4Xmile and winning the college
division event, placing ahead of K-State and WSU. In individual events, Stan Iordanov set a BCCC record in the 5,000
meters at the Texas Relays, Brett Donovan placed second in the high jump, and Laura Nelson finished fourth in shot put.
Approaching the end of the season, the outdoor track team began to lose some of its best members and this posed
new problems for the team to face. Their problems started when Mike Wilkey, a four-time all-America runner, came
down with a respiratory disease, Wegener's granulomatosis, and had to be hospitalized. Shortly after he was released
another member had to withdraw from competition. Randy Grayson, a three-time all-America runner, who was also
checked into the hospital, before being diagnosed as a borderline diabetic.
The remainder of the team did not let this slow them down, instead they did just the opposite. They worked even
harder to win and kept their teammates in mind while competing in the final events of the season.

It was a year of highs and lows,
according to first year tennis coach
Denny Jaye. "There were more ups
than downs, " Jaye explains. "We had
some terrific freshmen who gained a
lot of experience and will come back
next year as better sophomores who
will compliment next year's excellent
freshman class." Both mens and
womens teams were knocked out
during tough regional competition. The
men's record was 37-18, while the
womens team mustered only six wins.

to take a minute to answer a question
or just to visit for a few minutes. Be-
cause of these things I was able to learn
quite a lot about something I really had
no previous experience with.
One evening started out with the
preparation of the props and equipment
for the scenes to be filmed later that
night. Everyone was rushing here and
there with a job to do. Even the

Being a director requires a lot from
a person. With the pressure to make ev-
erything happen as planned and keep
everything and everyone where they
should be, it is natural that the director
should stand out from the others. And
Burton does just that. Not to be con-
fused with anyone else he has his own
way of doing things, from his hair to
his means of transportation (a golf cart).
Burton sets his own style. Yet, endur-
ing everything that he does, he still finds
time to sign an autograph or say hello
to his fans who flock to him whenever
in sight. But, when it comes down to
filming, nothing could tear him away.
The biggest problems they seem to
face include, getting the proper light-
ing, keeping everything on sched-
ule, and, of course, keeping the stars
happy. This is where the "behind the
scenes" people come in.

When they began preparing for
a scene, first the set and props had to
be placed where they were needed. Fol-
lowing this, the lights had to be set up
and adjusted to just the right angle.
Then, the cameras were set up. Finally
came the arrival of Tim Burton, who
had been waiting in his trailer.
Now it was time for the others'
work to start, while those who set ev-
erything up got to relax. Just one scene
may filmed several different times be-
fore they were done, and it was time to
move on to the next set. The scenes did
not appear to be filmed in any specific
order, and there was not more than one
specific scene filmed at a time. It is
amazing how eventually all of these in-
dividual scenes will fit together.
During the filming, everyone was
ready to do whatever was needed. Bur-

ton closely watched every action of the
actors and actresses in the scene. When
he couldn't be found sitting in his
director's chair, he could be seen mak-
ing sure that everything was all right.
Putting on the final touches before the
last take. Once the cameras started roll-
ing, you could instantly see how every-
thing was going by the expression on
his face. It was easy to tell whether
things were going smoothly or not. At
that very moment nothing seemed more
important than what could be seen
through the camera. Once the scene was
over he hopped back on his golf cart to
head off to his next destination.

the opportunity to discuss that particu-
lar scene and what had taken place pre-
viously with crew members and to take
a look inside of the trailers that they
had been filming in. Everything had
been specifically designed and picked
just for this movie; from the furniture
to the decorations on the walls. Al-
though some of the old chairs, tables,
and refrigerators that were setting
around in the trailer court came from
the Burns clean up day. They were the
things that people no longer wanted
and had been set out on the curb to be
picked up by the city. Due to rain, the
city had to postpone the pickup and this
allowed the movie crew to find a few
extra props that would come in handy
later on during the filming.
entire time, I noticed that once things
have started rolling nothing stops until it
is over. Even then the work is not done.
After the actors/actresses and even direc-
tor have left, others remain behind to
clean things up and prepare for the next
day. All of this calls for long days and
hard work. All in all I would have to say
that this was quite a day, even though I
only saw one day of it and didn't come
back to the rush again the following day.

what goes into the making of a movie

the same way.
The previous night was the long
awaited scene in which the donut shop
was blown up. For this, about 500 people
showed up. They came with lawnchairs
and blankets, prepared to stay as long as
was necessary. The inside of the donut
shop was fully stocked with ev-

Well, it all comes down to who you are
and who you know, and if you are in
the right place at the right time.
The atmosphere and objectives
were quite different from the normal
day to day life we get to know. There
was an air of importance that sur-

can only dream of it. It is easy to see
how people can get hooked on the

Leif Jonker, Mars Attacks crew
member, took the time to show me
around where I otherwise would not
have been able to go. This in-
sight was possible
because of his gener-
osity. He summed up
the entire thing when
he said, "This is going
to be a huge movie."
After finishing up
filming in Burns, the crew
then moved on to Wichita,
where they filmed for three
days. After that, their next
stop was Las Vegas, before fin-
ishing up the movie. They had
also filmed a scene in Leon dur-
ing this time. The movie is sched-
uled to come out sometime in De-
cember of this year.

Construction on Bob's Donut World began early in March so that it would be ready in April.
Work began on March 3rd in
Burns. It took about a month for the
work to be completed. Everything
was finished the day before the
filming was scheduled to begin. It
started with the construction of a
donut shop. This was followed by a
gas station and garage, made by put-
ting a false front on another build-
ing in the vicinity.
Soon to be brought in from
California was a donut to be put on
top of the donut shop, but this
wasn't just any ordinary donut, this
one stood 26 feet high. There arose
a new problem, people began stop-
ping at "Bob's Donut World" for
something to eat or drink. Imagine
how they felt when they discovered
that this was just a movie set. Fol-
lowing the completion of these,
people began moving in Airstream
trailers which were soon to be made
into the town trailer court. It was
then that things began to escalate.
The movie crew began to arrive and
the population of the new town
"Perkinsville" (otherwise known as
Burns) began to rise.
